Taylor Swift gaining on 1D – Tickifieds Top 10

TaylorSwift3Top Events Week 22 (5/22/2013 to 5/28/2013)

1. One Direction

Another week goes by with One Direction kicking everyone’s butts.  With recent announcement of 2014 tour dates don’t expect things to change anytime soon. Really hot right now are tickets to their 2014 concert in Dublin!

2.  Taylor Swift

Miss Swift continues to surge and comes in at an impressive #2 this week.  Although she is still a considerable distance from 1D, if she continues this trend she could surpass the current “kings of tickifieds”.  Popular Taylor Swift concerts include Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston.

3.  Hunter Hayes

The 21 year old country crooner Hunter Hayes has been hot this past week climbing up the charts all the way to #3 this week.  It’s no surprise he is up for several Teen Choice Awards including Top Male Country Artist.  Top Hunter Hayes concerts include 7/18 at the Porter County Fair in Valpo, 8/4 in Costa Mesa and Dayton Ohio on 7/23.

4.  Chicago Blackhawks vs Detroit Red Wings

With the Red Wings head to the NHL Eastern Conference next season, this mark the last time these old rivals will meet in the conference playoffs.  As such, it’s fitting that the Blackhawks have come back from the brink of elimination to force a historic Game 7.

5.  San Antonio Spurs NBA Finals

The San Antonio Spurs are not one of the most popular NBA franchises but that has not stopped them from continuing to win.  Spurs tickets for the 2013 NBA Finals are hot this week as this is probably the last hurrah for this current core of players.  Also, it doesn’t hurt that Spurs NBA Finals tickets are surprisingly affordable.

6. Ke$ha

Fresh on the heels of the debut of her new reality show, her summer 2013 tour with Pit Bull and solo tour this fall, Kesha is hot right now.  Hot concerts right now include Columbus OH,   Atlanta GA and Raleigh NC.

7.  San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers may have lost the Super Bowl but they are odds on favorites to win it all this year.  Fans are excited to see what exciting young QB Colin Kaepernick can do with a full season at the helm of the Jim Harbaugh offense.  Big games include the season opener against the Green Bay Packers, September 22nd against the Indy Colts and Houston Texans on October 6th, 2013.

8.  Boston Bruins vs Pittsburgh Penguins Eastern Conference Finals

It doesn’t get much better than an Eastern Conference Finals showdown between 2 historic rivals in the Boston Bruins and Pittsburgh Penguins.  Games 1 and 2 will be played in Pittsburgh with Games 3 and 4 in Boston.  Game 1 is on Saturday June 1st.

9.  Alabama Crimson Tide

College football season seems like an eternity away but that has not stopped Alabama Crimson Tide fans from gobbling up tickets for the 2013 season.  Bama is expected to compete for a national title once again so demand should be strong all year.

10.  Beyonce

Beyonce will be returning to the states to resume her 2013 Ms Carter World Tour.  Popular shows include Brooklyn, Dallas and Washington DC.

4.  Sting

A bit of a surprise here as Sting hasn’t had any recent onsale events nor tour annoucments.  However, there was a spike in demand for Sting tickets (especially over the weekend).  Popular shows include 6/5 at Red Rocks, 6/7 at Ravinia (Highland Park, IL) and at the Santa Barbara Bowl on 6/3.

5. Tim McGraw

7.  Firefly Music Festival

The 2013 Firefly Music Festival will feature an impressive lineup that includes Red Hot Chili Peppers, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Vampire Weekend, and Foster the People.  It’s no wonder this event is getting a ton of ticket interest as the festival date approaches.  The event will take place in Dover Delaware from Friday June 21 to Sunday June 23, 2013.

8.  Detroit Red Wings

Tickifieds Top 10 Events Week 20 2013

Top Events Week 20 (5/7/2013 to 5/14/2013)

1.  One Direction

The lads from One Direction will be officially invading the United States in less than a month now and ticket demand could not be any stronger.  Fans young and old are really amping up their search for those hard to get Meet and Greet, VIP and Sound Check packages.  Unfortunately inventory is extremely limited.

2.  Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins had one of the most exciting finishes to a NHL Playoff game/series in recent memory.  The Bruins were down 2 goals with 90 seconds remaining in a critical game 7 against the Toronto Maple Leafs.  The Bruins advance to the second round and will face the NY Rangers starting with game 1 on Thursday.

3.  Selena Gomez

Pop princess Selena Gomez returns to the top 10 this week at an impressive #3.  The little peak in interest in Selena Gomez tickets is likely due to the amount of airplay her latest single off her new album  “Come and Get it” is getting.  Popular Selena Gomez shows include San Antonio, Boston and Toronto.
